    There are definitely sections of the book that are hard to appreciate. In that I probably did not. The majority of it is approachable and really gives an appreciation for the decisions that go into how to organize data. The section on retrieval by secondary key was a real delight. The feeling at each section of "that data structure is awesome" followed by a more apt one is impressive. Especially for how often it happens.

Even seeing I was coming to the end of the book, I got used to the surprise of yet another way to do things. I do hope he gets the next version out with some of the items on Persistent Data Structures out. I am not completely sold that those are necessary for most applications, but I suspect I'll be proven wrong. :)

    Of the first 3 volumes in this series, this is the most essential after the first. Sorting and searching are among the most important concepts programmers need to master in order to become master programmers.

    As usual, I am very fond of Knuth's depth and writing style. I've paused this book in favor of filling in, rather large holes in, my Algebraic and Category Theoretic knowlege.
